Between sexual and romantic dating app adventures, Ulysses grows increasingly troubled as foreboding premonitory dreams make him wonder if some kind of dark and monstrous conspiracy going on, or is he just smoking too much weed?

Posey will appear as Gabriel, described as an incredibly charismatic and mysterious guy that Ulysses matches with on a dating app. During their highly-anticipated first date, they can hardly contain themselves.

The series stars Avan Jogia, Kelli Berglund, Beau Mirchoff and Roxane Mesquida.

Posey played the lead character on MTV’s “Teen Wolf,” which aired its 100th and final episode in September 2017. Currently, he recurs on the CW’s “Jane the Virgin” and recently joined the cast of MTV’s “Scream: The TV Series” for Season 3. Posey also recently starred in the Blumhouse film “Truth or Dare,” Kevin Smith’s feature comedy “Yoga Hosers.”He has also appeared in films like “Scary Movie 5” and “White Frog.”

He is repped by Gersh and 3 Arts Entertainment.

Now Apocalypse” will be created and executive produced by Gregg Araki, with Steven Soderbergh also set to executive produce. Starz has ordered a 10-episode first season of “Now Apocalypse.” All 10 episodes are co-written by author and Vogue.com sex columnist Karley Sciortino, creator and host of “Slutever” on Viceland. The order also furthers Soderbergh’s relationship with Starz, for whom he also executive produces the drama series “The Girlfriend Experience,” based on his 2009 film of the same name.
